O Taste and See...

Psalm 34:8
"O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him."

I have often said that God is the first to get the blame when things go wrong but the last to be credited and thanked when things go right. Why is that?

Perhaps it is our sinful nature. Perhaps it is our failure to express gratitude when it is warranted. And perhaps it is due to the fact that some persons are always sitting perched and ready to blame God as an excuse for the lack of faith or to justify their lack of belief in God at all.

The thing that strikes me most, however, is that those claim to have no belief in God will be the first to blame God, in unguarded moments, when their world falls apart. From a logical standpoint, this makes no sense whatsoever. You can't blame Deity for your woes if Deity does not exist.

By the same token, it is highly inconsistent for a believer to blame God for all that's wrong in the world but fail to thank God for blessings that are granted to us on a daily basis.

God is good. God is not vindictive nor spiteful. God wants the best for those who trust in Him. You can take it to the bank!
